F1 2019 is a must have for fans of racing and sports games alike. Easily the most complete package in the F1 catalogue to date, you’ll be uncovering new things to do all the time. This is the kind of game that you can get lost in and forget about all the other great games being released.
Gato Roboto is an absolutely great game. That doesn’t mean it’s without flaws, but the few that are present are easily overshadowed by the brilliant pixel art, often refreshing humor, and fun gameplay. Even stages that are often the downfall of a Metroidvania such as a water level or chase sequence are done incredibly well.
Katana ZERO is a game that has a lot going for it. The visual style, music, branching dialogue options, and unique time bending abilities certainly separate it from the crowded pack of 2D side scrolling indie action games. Unfortunately, this isn’t enough to save it from repetitive and aggravating game play.
Falcon Age’s narrative is touching and sincere. The concept of bonding with a pet or companion to accomplish your goals is not one that has been overdone, and will appeal to many players. Technical issues aside, Falcon Age is a welcome title that not only helped us see a different angle of modernization than we are used to seeing in the medium, but was also incredibly cute and enjoyable.
Overall, while short, the compelling nature of She Remembered Caterpillars more than makes up for this shortcoming. It offers enough of a challenge to stump you into working to decipher the puzzles, while not punishing you for your attempts.
Metro has come a long way since the series' humble beginnings last generation. Each sequel builds on the foundation that its predecessors built yet can't quite shake some of the flaws that have always held them back a bit. Many of the issues found in 2033 and Last Light have been addressed. However, Metro Exodus still finds a way, especially as the game hits the third act, to remind us of many of the problems we've always had with this franchise.
There probably isn't enough here to bring new fans over that haven't played the series in the past due to outdated graphics and some features missing from prior releases. That really is a shame because if you'd take the time to sit down and play it there really is a plenty of fun to be had here.
This game will not challenge you nor will it show you anything that you haven’t seen before from a mechanic point of view. Clocking in at only 3 to 5 hours, you won’t even be playing it for all that long. But what Pikuniku will do is make you smile. It’s outrageous, random, nostalgic, and most importantly, shouldn’t be missed.
